Your emotions make you human. Even the unpleasant ones have a purpose. Don’t lock them away. If you ignore them, they just get louder and angrier.

A Torch Against the Night (Ember Quartet #2) by Sabaa Tahir. I just started reading this book yesterday and it already has its teeth in me. It picks right up where the first book left off which is great. I hate picking up a sequel and being a year or years after the first book. So far, this has been a great read. Looking forward to reading more of it.

What did you recently finish reading?

There are two kinds of guilt. The kind that’s a burden and the kind that gives you purpose. Let your guilt be your fuel. Let it remind you of who you want to be. Draw a line in your mind. Never cross it again. You have a soul. It’s damaged but it’s there. Don’t let them take it from you.

An Ember in the Ashes (Ember Quartet #1) by Sabaa Tahir. When I picked up this book I really wasn’t sure what to expect. I have to say, I ended up loving it so much that I snagged the second book mere minutes after finishing this one. My full review on this will be up on May 19th but for now I will say that this story truly sucked me in. It felt like a unique setting with very well fleshed out characters.

What do you think you’ll read next?

The Case of the Deadly Doppelganger (Dr Ribero’s Agency of the Supernatural #2) by Lucy Banks. I read the first book in this series, The Case of the Green-Dressed Ghost , early in 2017. I’m sorry to say that, though I enjoyed the book, I had forgotten about the series and this addition to it was released and sailed by me without my even noticing. I hope to rectify that as the first book was an entertaining if quick read and very enjoyable. Hopefully the second book in the series is equally as fun!

The Ember Quartet has really pulled me in. I wasn’t really expecting to like them but am so glad that I ended up picking up the first one. Such a great story. What books have you read that you weren’t expecting to enjoy but were pleasantly surprised?

  1. I’m so happy to see you reading A Torch right now and that you enjoyed An Ember so much! I adore this series a lot and will not impatiently await my copy of Reaper to arrive. *checks calendar for millionth time*

    The most recent book that I can think of that I enjoyed more than I expected is probably the Arc Of The Scythe series by Neal Shusterman! I’m currently about a third of the way through book 2 and LOVING it. I was listening to the audiobook earlier while doing the dishes and OUT LOUD yelled ‘SHIT SHIT SHIT’ at the end of the first part and things just continued that way in part 2!
